Reports on sky news saying Iran has launched 100 drones and missiles against Israel, Worrying times over in that region of the world.

More than 100 kamikaze drones, cruise & ballistic missiles. Not good at all. Apparently 9 hours to reach Israel. Interesting to see if the Iron Dome works, and how the US deal with it. Surely Iran knows too heavy an attack invites US retaliation

Hopefully just posturing by Iran, their leaders had to be seen to be doing something after Israel wiped out the Iranian consulate in Damascus ( without asking permission from the Americans if you believe the media)

Israel have just stated that the southern IDF base that suffered minor damage was Nevatim. Also reported on BBC news.

Not sure if it's FC policy to comment on operational missions so apologies in advance if so.

Did extra Typhoons fly out over the weekend in support of this?

The 6 jets deployed to Romania moved to akrotiri.
Posted on several sites including the MOD official links and some links that are less reliable.

🇺🇦 🌻 🇺🇦 Ukrainian flag, sunflower, Ukrainian flag.

Perhaps RAF jets could be better employed shooting at Russian UAVs thus helping the Ukrainian civilians.
